About Us

Our story

The Prestonfield Neighbourhood Project is a charity organisation, founded by Prestonfield activists in 1988, which focuses on care for the elderly from our neighbourhood centre on Prestonfield Avenue.

The Project started initially offering advice and information for older people in the Community of Prestonfield and the wider South Edinburgh area. Despite the City of Edinburgh Council withdrawing funding, we still offer a reduced advice and information service.

In 1995, we received funding from a private charity to build and then open Prestonfield Neighbourhood Centre – a centre allowing people to meet and be socially active thus reducing the social isolation older people faced. The community soon learned this was the place to come for help, advice and social care.

Today, we provide a whole range of services for older people in the community from our neighbourhood center including Lunch Clubs, Day Care, Dementia Day Care, a Men’s Group, Carer Support, a Personal Footcare service, various social events, as well as a “Heat and Eat” service in the winter months plus much more.
